Decisive week in the AFC West

With Oakland tied with San Diego in the AFC, 1-0, the Raiders are in a favorable position to advance and hold their own destiny in their hands.

San Diego faces the leagues #1 Offense in Foxborough Sunday with Tom Brady red hot and NE, a 6 1/2 point favorite, determined to go all the way.

Meanwhile, the recently downtrodden Chiefs face one of the best QB's in the league, Matt Stafford and his favorite target - the illustrious Calvin Johnson.  Detroit's DL is good and should torment the KC backfield worse than did Buffalo. For what it's worth, the Lions are 8 pt favorites.

To round things out, our former Hero, Bruce Gradkowski is likely to see some significant play time -may even start for the injured Dalton (wrist) - in the Bengals match against the Broncos at Mile High. Denver is favored by 4 but the spread opened at 6. Cincinnati may pull this one off with Grad running the show.

Monday morning's conceivable reality:

Oakland 2 - 0

San Diego 1 - 1

Kansas City 0 - 2

Denver 0 - 2

For our part, we must focus on one thing and one thing only, we must beat Fitzgerald, Steve Johnson and the Buffalo Bills. Everything else is out of our control but does look quite favorable.
